Through the construction of the Atal Tunnel, the Border Roads Organization (BRO) has expedited the Manali-Srinagar roadway. By this time next year, it should be finished. As part of the project, the ancient Tandi-Kishtwar state highway will be double-laned, creating a shorter route axis between Himachal and J&K. The traditional Manali-Jammu-Srinagar Road is 650 km long, but the Manali-Srinagar Road via the Atal Tunnel and Kishtwar is around 150 kilometres shorter. The Tandi-Kishtwar route was taken over by BRO due to its strategic importance and difficult terrain.
People hardly ever travel the route, which has a reputation for being the worst and most hazardous road in Himachal. In order to widen the road and make it as smooth as other highways, the BRO had taken on the task of cutting the mountains.
Three additional highway bridges are being built by BRO. According to Col. Shabarish Vachali, commander of the 38 Border Road Task Force (38 BRTF), the 94 Road Construction Company (94 RCC) stationed there has been given the assignment to improve the road from Tandi near Keylong to Sansari before Kishtwar. In order to finish the allotted work of building the highway, BRO is cutting 90-degree vertical mountain slopes in several locations. The valley stretches from the Chenab River to very high glacial peaks.
